Erik Spoelstra


In a game that lacked the energy of the first two meetings, the more injured team (Wizards) dealt with the lesser injured team (Miami Heat) convincingly.


Erik Spoelstra can empathize with the Wizards, who are two games below .500 after getting routed by his Miami Heat on Sunday.


Hassan Whiteside didn't play in the fourth quarter for the Miami Heat on Sunday for a different reason than the last time when they met the Wizards.


A victory meant more to the Miami Heat than it did the Wizards, who stuck with reserves in a close game down the stretch Wednesday.
